Mouph Yarou signs in Serbia with Radnicki Kragujevac

USA TODAY Sports

The former Villanova center is slated to join the Serbian A League this season.

A post on Twitter from agent Misko Raznatovic, Villanova graduate Mouphtaou Yarou will join the Serbian-A League team Radnicki Kragujevac this season, to continue his basketball career as a professional. The team will also compete in Adriatic League and Eurocup competition this season. It will reportedly be a one-year deal for Yarou.

The team itself relocated to the City of Kragujevac from Vršac, Serbia in the 2009-10 season. They play their games in the Jezero Hall arena, a 5,320-seat facility that hosts both professional basketball as well as volleyball, handball and futsal.

Lions_mediumEurobasket.com has already inserted Yarou into their projected starting five for Radnicki, placing him as the starting small forward. Yarou has a big body, but his most potent offensive weapon last season was a mid-range jump shot, so the move may make sense -- especially in the European game, where bigs with shooting prowess are not unusual.

Yarou averaged 9.9 points as a senior at Villanova last season on 47.8% shooting from the field and 78% from the free-throw line. His 7.8 rebounds per game led the team by a significant margin as well.
